Army of the Dead

Army of the Dead ★★★★½

That’s right.

EDIT okay an actual review: Snyder understands that the trope that really works in zombie films is when someone you love has been bitten and you have to kill them. If you play that right then it’s the saddest thing in the world to imagine, let alone need to do. Army of the Dead, for all its flashy action and maybe a little cringey quips, gets this down to a T. The idea frames the whole story. The guilt of it that must eat at you. How do you face doing that? How do you have done that?

I imagine zombie people will be pretty anti how this film reads zombies, to the extent that they aren’t really zombies at all. I’m fine with it because I’m not a zombie person. Maybe you are... are you annoyed by it? That’s fair.
